Health Center

Staying at the Waldhotel will be a spectacular journey! A symbiosis of innovative architectural designs — where nature meets medical innovation to create a unique health experience. More than 1,100 m above sea level, the Waldhotel introduces you the holistic «Healthy by Nature» concept, immersed in typical southern Swiss mountain scenery and surrounded by green meadows and forests, herbal gardens and fresh air.  

This is where outstanding Swiss medical expertise redefines clinical care by focusing on developing integrated and individualised approaches to medical treatments, helping you lead a better life. Life expectancy has been increasing for decades. But a long life does not necessarily mean a healthy life. A check-up may find early stage disorders and offers a chance for early treatment. Our goal is to add healthy, enriched years to your life through our holistic programmes, defined by an extensive medical care team with renowned specialists in a variety of medical fields. 

Extensive scientific collaborations and partnerships with Swiss medical centres allow us always to strive for excellence in our methods, relying heavily on the extraordinary medical infrastructure featured at the Waldhotel.

We lead you to a better life!
